    I get very tired or weary of "well, let's meet them [rightsholders] in the middle on this, they do own the content and so we'll make the effort to appease them" because years later we are still struggling with this nonsense. I know due to DMCA it may be difficult for YT to fight (much less take a moral stand, though in my view if no one profits off of this stuff then it should remain up, I don't like the intellectual property wars) but really, this has all turned into a gigantic dick waving competition, essentially, where anything can get taken down any time for any reason

      This was another recent ridiculous example: YouTube Copyright Filters Suck: The 'Beat Saber' And 'Jimmy Fallon' Edition

      They played Beat Saber on Jimmy Fallon, and then a whole bunch of Beat Saber gameplay videos started getting automatically taken down because the YouTube filters decided they were uploads of the show.

        I guess what bothers me is the archaic idea that artists will lose money if you simply allow people to share culture. It's not clear that that's the case, that they'd significantly suffer compared to our current model. But it's used as an excuse to basically shut down the internet. All of that creativity... gone. Why? So rich assholes can make money. Sorry for not seeing it their way but I'm prone to lose patience on this

          I am sure most of the "true" artists can make more money / better money (i.e. less strings attached) on platforms like Patreon instead of traditional media, which has long become an industry where true creativity is not really welcome.

    MS has a large and very adept licensing team that I have worked with a lot. As thorough as they are it is tough for me to imagine those folks failing to have every element properly licensed unless the project manager somehow managed to use something not under their blanket licensing terms.

      It's most likely a false flag, this is fairly common in the Youtube space for all the wrong reasons. I don't think anyone thinks that Microsoft has violated any licenses, it's just the licensee which probably just flags everything without any review by a human being.
